Tri for a Cure Swim Clinics

There will be four on-course swim clinics held at SMCC. Race Director, Julie Marchese will discuss water safety, navigation and provide important swimming tips before sending waves of women into the water for a swim around the course. Swim Angels & kayaks will be available for water safety. Staff will be available following the swim to answer any questions and concerns. These clinics are offered to provide women the chance to experience an ocean swim with a group, as it will be on race day. This will be a good opportunity to practice with your wetsuit and get comfortable with the cool water temperature. We will have sheJAMs “SWIM ANGELS” available for those who need them.

All participants are encouraged to swim in open water with your wetsuit several times before race day.  The clinics are a way to experience swimming with a group of 100 women in a swim wave.  Race day should not be your first time in open water.  Please be prepared, because swimming in cold open water on race day take practice.
